such as john mccain. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. um, i do think that some of the statements he's made about me have been unfounded, but i rook forward to having the -- i look forward to having the opportunity to discuss all of this with him. >> reporter: director of national intelligence james clapper is wanted to return to capitol hill to explain why he told them he did not change the talking points. clapper's spokeman, sean turner, says it was clapper's own agency. >> reporter: jennifer griffin, thank you. rick: talk more about this with susan, chief congressional correspondent for the washington with examiner. susan, happy thanksgiving, good to see you. >> thanks, you too. rick: what'd you think of susan rice's comments? >> clearly, she's setting up the opportunity for becoming the next secretary of state. it is looking more likely, like the president at least wants to nominate her. and for him it will depend on how easily he can get her through the senate without dragging out this whole debate over benghazi. i
, to meet with the people you see on your screen here. you have senator john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte. she went to address concerns they have over statements the ambassador made over the u.s. mission in benghazi on september 11th that left ambassador chris stevens and three other americans dead. i want you to listen to what senator graham, republican south carolina, here, said immediately after the meeting ended. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before that the 16 september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi, libya, by ambassador rice, i think does not do justice to the reality at the time, and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. but here's the key. in real time, it was a statement disconnected from reality. >> and now here is senator ayotte. >> i want to say that i'm more troubled today, knowing -- having met with the acting director of the cia and ambassador rice, because it's certainly clear from the beginning that we knew that those with ties to al qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy. and clearly the impression that wa
the al-qaeda stuff. i'm not buying it. none of this adds up. mccain isn't buying it. are you buying it? >> i'm not buying it because the chairman of the house intelligence committee said a week ago in classified testify that same clapper said that they had no idea who changed the talking points and now a week later he is saying did he? that's kind of strange. >> there is a lot of lying going on here. >> i mean, i've seen am amnesiay in my clinical days and that one is pretty quick. >> alisyn: he's not saying -- his office is saying. it could be another case of who in the office did it. another game of clue. >> steve: some in washington on the rye feel he's just the latest fall guy for the white house. >> alisyn: we will keep you posted on all that throughout the show. let's get to your headlines. we have breaking details in search for a serial killer. police in new york city are interrogating a man in connection to this case. the man is apparently a salesman who peddles clothing from a duffel bag. he was caught carrying the bag near the scene of the latest crime. sources say a gun was
, and john mccain. what is going on here? it certainly looks to a layman that there is a desperate scramble to find a way to raise revenue in a cbo-scoreable way that would not be seen as violating the pledge. the question is, is the pledge losing its magic? >> i really take very strong exception to taking this poll seriously. because if you ask people, the vast majority of whom are not going to be subjected to this tax, and they are being told that somebody else will have to pay it -- and if you discover in the process that only 60% of the voters are in favor of that, i think it speaks for itself and speaks very well of the american people. if you have a public opinion poll where the voters would be asked how would you feel if we cut all of your taxes by half, and also give your children free tuition, except we would have to have a referendum on exiling barack obama from the united states, i would be interesting to hear the results of this vote. polls like that in my view should not be part of the serious conversation. everything else you said i completely agree with. [laughter] >> by cont
was in on the negotiations which went on for months with senator kennedy and senator mccain and others. we tried very hard to come up with a balanced, comprehensivive immigration reform. and what we found is that if you took one set -- say you're talking about the dream act or the young people who are here and we want to have them achieve, you take that and you are working on that but then someone who is for you on that but they don't like what you've done on the side of border control or more d.p.s. agents or more of the border patrol agents. and then you have another set that wants something for ag workers. and they won't like something you did in another section. and we found it impossible to come together in a comprehensive way and it fell apart. that's why i think a step by step approach is the one that will be more successful. because the more ways you have to deal with the solitary issue-- and in this case it's the most time-sensitive issue because it's these young people who have american educations, they've graduated from high school, they want to go to college, they want to be a part of our syst
to meet with a number of member of congress. following the meeting, senator lindsay graham and john mccain spoke to others. their comments to reporters are about 10 minutes. >> we had a very candid discussion with ms. rice and the acting director c.i.a., we are troubled by some of the answers we have gotten. there was evidence leading up to the attack on the consulate and the tragic deaths of brave americans and ambassador rice was warned sufficiently. it is clear that the information given to the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration that triggered it. it was not. there were many indications that that was not the case, including statements from libyans and other americans. bottom line i'm more concerned than i was before that the explanation about how four americans tide does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was wrong. in realtime it was disconnected from reality. anybody looking at the threats, it would jump out at you that this was an al qaeda storm in the making. i'm disappointed in our intelligence community. i
like. tom coburn, john mccain. so what's going on here. they expanded not violated pledge. >> the exception to taking this seriously because the vast majority of whom are not going to be subjected to this tax and they are being told that somebody else would have to wait. and if you discover in the process that only 60% of the borders are in favor of that, i think it speaks for itself and very well of the american people. if you have a public opinion poll where the rule would be asked how do you feel if we cut all of your taxes and those would give your children free tuition except we have to have a referendum should not be a part of the serious conversation. >> [inaudible] [laughter] >> the exit poll that was done asked several questions and if you cut and paste some of their you get the 60% but the question that was interesting is that people in the press who come up with a 60% number and an actual question which was should you raise taxes to reduce the debt which is a question that is on the table 63% said no. but you can also look at the history of questions going when
a great deal of his team. >> senator mccain is absolutely right. those of us who served with bob dole revere bob dole. he's such a stalwart figure in the history of america. he had all the qualities of a leader that i admire and certainly wish i had. he had a great sense of humor. no one that's ever served in the senate has ever had a better, quicker sense of humor than bob dole. he used it to perfection. >> former senator dole lost the use of one of his arms when he was wounded during world war ii. >> and the u.s. navvy wants to replace the aging fleet of marine one helicopters. the navy plans to buy 25 new helicopters used to transport the president. that's a draft request. the first of the helicopters would be ready in 2020. >>> in illinois, an election up in the air, and decided by a coin toss. right there, the candidates for dewitt county board seat were tied at 827 votes each. so the county clerk tossed a quarter and heads gave the election to the challenger, although he was pleased with the outcome, he said he considered the coin toss gambling, of which he does not approve. thi
